Summary

Imaginary Jesus is a hilarious, fast-paced, not-quite-fictional story that's unlike anything you've ever read before. When Matt Mikalatos realizes that his longtime buddy in the robe and sandals isn't the real Jesus at all, but an imaginary one, he embarks on a mission to find the real thing. On his wild ride through time, space, and Portland, Oregon, he encounters hundreds of other Imaginary Jesuses determined to stand in his way (like Legalistic Jesus, Perpetually Angry Jesus, and Magic 8 Ball Jesus). But Matt won't stop until he finds the real Jesus-and finally gets an answer to the question that's haunted him for years. Be warned: Imaginary Jesus may bring you face-to-face with an imposter in your own life.

Hilarious

Everyone in the world has their own idea of who Jesus is, and this audiobook takes you on a fantastic journey to discover who He really is. It?s such a different way to approach Jesus, which is probably why I liked it.

As I hadn?t read the blurb before listening I was expecting this to be theological, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that its not that at all.

I absolutely loved this audio book. Its hilarious, surreal, moving, challenging and liable to offend. So if you?re uptight or easily offended about how you think Jesus should be, don?t bother. But if you?re open to the fact that Jesus could be different to how you perceive Him, give it a try.

The author does a brilliant job of narrating his own audio book, so its really easy to listen to.

Thanks to christianaudio.com?s reviewer?s program for the copy of this audio book.

A humorous journey every Christian should read

Where does Imaginary Jesus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Making God after our own image is all too often a common struggle. With so many opinions and differing voices out there it is hard not to get caught up in the sensationalism, trends and niches. Matt Mikalatos amusingly exposes these and helps to paint a true picture of Christ. More than once I caught myself laughing out loud at his witty narrative, but never once did I lose sight of the ultimate message, which is to search after God’s true heart.

What about Matt Mikalatos’s performance did you like?

The author narrates his own story with surprising skill, and as the listener, you know you are getting a timing and oration that are spot on.

Good reading and vocalization of characters by the author.

I never write reviews

But I wanted to save others from reading this terrible book. Silly and non-sensible

Quirky at first but stay with it!!!!

I promise that if you stay with this book, you will be glad you did. For a fundamentalist, this book would be hard to read or listen to but I believe it's core values and portrayal of Jesus are spot on!

A fun story, an interesting journey, a wild ride to a place we all should want to be, no matter hard or painful it is to get there.
